advantage over president barack obama in both states. in florida, romney is at 49%, obama at 46. and romney's advantage in new hampshire is four points, 50-46%. ohio is one of the key swing states for both romney and obama. both have spent a whole lot of time there talking with voters. here's cnn's political editor paul steinhauser. >> good morning, randi. it's all about the buckeye state today. >> we need your help. we've got to win ohio. you've got to get your friends to help us win ohio. >> reporter: that's why mitt romney is spending his second straight day in ohio, where 18 electoral votes are up for grabs. mr. obama won the state four years ago. now ohio is one of the states romney really needs to turn red again in order to make it to the white house. the republican presidential nominee holds two rallies in the state today and his running mate paul ryan also campaigns separately in the buckeye state. president obama was in ohio a few days ago. next week, bruce springsteen will team up with former president clinton to stump for obama in ohio. the race for the state is very close right
of error it is still too close to call. how did the president and governor romney did at the debate? both are weighing in. >> well, governor romney i had a good night. i had a bad night. >> how bad? >> well, it is not the first time i've had a bad night. >> well, obviously the president wasn't happy with the response to our debate last night. >> what's your message to joe biden about tomorrow night? >> well i, you know, i think joe just needs to be joe. jon: joining us now is karl rove, former senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush and a fox news contributor. i want to get your take on that advice from the president. he said let joe be joe. isn't that kind of dangerous? >> depends who shows up. is it the gaffe meister who says he will put you all back in chains or the guy showed up at the debate in 2008 against sarah palin and did a very good job. jon: democrats say you will not see the un, the unchained, the loose cannon joe biden tonight. that he will be very much on message. do you expect that? >> i expect that. he has more experience in presidential debat
federal budget deficits. what governor romney has done i think is make it easier to debate on both sides in terms of what are the next steps we need to take as americans to stay engaged and contribute so that this region doesn't become more turbulent and more dangerous. so it become as little bit more acceptable -- politically acceptable perhaps offering the libyans more assistance for their security forces or the president morsi in egypt is willing to stay in positive fashion for us and israel to offer more assistance that. is stone and style of debate i would welcome because i feel that politicians otherwise tend to fear we have to talk about retrenchment and withdrawal given problems we're having back here in the united states. that is not necessarily good for our foreign policy. romney pushed it in the better direction. jon: with our murder of our first ambassador in 30 years, more than 30 years. turbulent and dangerous is appropriate question. jenna: whether or not the tide of is receding. from that standpoint a lot of philosophy is made. a lot of foreign policy is comes whether you
'm barack obama, and i approve this message. [ female announcer ] he says... president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. [ female announcer ] but this is what the budget plan mitt romney supports actually does. more huge tax breaks skewed to the wealthy. while cutting nearly eight hundred billion from medicaid... even though middle-class families rely on medicaid to help loved ones cover nursing-home care. and it helps parents support children with disabilities. if mitt romney really "cares," wouldn't we see it in his priorities? infringement on our lives.s s le chaigingsuch an...here too.. the how dare they step into my life that way. it's none of their business. he's trying to restrict us, again. he's taking us backwards. george allen is the last thing we need in washington. anncr: the democratic senatorial campaign committee is... responsible for the content of this advertising. . >>> hitting the grocery store on the way home from work took on a new meaning. billboards will allow you to start shopping on the spot. laura evans is here to explain why you -- where y

go about doing that? >> i think that both ryan and romney need to do what they are doing right now, go to directly to the american people and give them their plan. most people need to hear something seven times before it actually sinks in. just continuing to do what they have done so far and just being very articulate. >> gregg: let me stop you there. the criticism of that plan, in terms of the approach of reducing tax marginal tax rates and increasing revenues and the cost it might add to the deficit is criticized as being non-specific. how do they respond to that? >> governor romney has laid out a framework. any time you have a plan such as this, you don't want to put all the details out there because there are negotiations that need to take place. the framework has been looked up by six different independent organizations including those from harvard and princeton. to say this plan will work. so the details don't need to be out there right now. the framework is very clear about what mitt romney and paul ryan want to do to strengthen our middle-class. >> gregg: i might say that t

that image, romney met with a group of retired generals after a speech. the romney approach would be both more muscular and bipartisan. >> if you look at harry truman and john kennedy and the use of power by bill clinton in his second term, that is a much different approach than jimmy carter and barack obama. >> reporter: to put his vision into action, romney will have to win first, which explains why he made an impromptu stop at a nearby elementary school. at this stage of the race, the pictures matter almost as much as the policies. romney did mention the obama campaign's trump card on foreign policy, the killing of osama bin laden, but he seemed to give the credit to what he called, quote, military and intelligence professionals. romney will now shift back to the economy with campaign events coming up here in virginia and also in iowa and ohio. wolf? >> jim acosta, thank you. let's go back to gloria borger. what was mitt romney trying to accomplish with this marriage foreign policy speech today? >> well, i think he was trying to do a bunch of things. first of all, on the leadership que

. >> all right, stephanie, thank you. >>> and now to politics. both president obama and governor romney are trying to make their case to the nation as they hit their final stretch and they're not the only ones squaring off these days. john stewart and bill o'reilly are doing it as well. mike viqueira has more now from the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, jenna. both candidates are pouring it on now, raising big piles of campaign cash and playing to ever bigger crowds. this with 30 days to go to the finish line. momentum off his debate's success, mitt romney kept the heat on the president last night in florida. >> he said, you know, you can't fix washington from the inside. you can only fix it from the outside. we'll give him that chance on november. >> reporter: the romney campaign says it's taken in $12 million in campaign cash. while the obama campaign reported a record monthly haul, $181 million in september, tops for either campaign this year. in his weekly address the president touted another september number, the unexpected drop in the jobless rate. >>
. governor romney knowing that said i would sign it. were i there. >> you can see both candidates throwing around a lot of claims about medicare. tom foreman and reality check team. have been checking facts, tom. what do you see? >> medicare is a government health care plan, mainly for people over 65, million people are counting on that. as you heard from both campaigns, each side is saying the other side's future plans are terrible. >> obama care, take s 716 billin to take care of obama care. >> seniors, have you been denied choices, lost an advantage. >> they haven't put a credible idea on the table. >> ideas are old, bad and eliminate the guarantee of medicare. >> essentially what they are saying, my opponent will destroy medicare, can that really be true. let's look at the facts and consider what's in front of us. the white house plan and the landscape they are facing. over the next ten years, the cost of medicare is going to gradually ramp up until it's about a trillion dollars a year. the white house and joe biden would like to introduce that by 10%, the orange section in here. that'
're even up both candidates with women voters telling women not to trust mitt romney telling what he said on the campaign trail he wouldn't move -- >> time and again the president told us he would take on some of these things but hasn't. then he turns around and tries to blame others. congress won't get together. congress won't get together unless there is strong leader that puts them together. bill: john, thank you. want to drill down on the billboard and show you a little bit of the strategy mitt romney put in place over the last week alone. specifically in places like ohio, virginia and florida. he is going to some of these counties where the president won big over senator mccain four years ago. specifically i want to take to you summit county here. this is northeastern ohio. heavily democratic four years ago. 59-41% in summit county president obama beat senator mccain. we saw mitt romney there just the other day with chris christie, the governor from new jersey. down here in virginia, also, 13 electoral votes, highly important for both men this year. southeastern virginia, four years
partisan lines. >> they definitely do. in many ways i agree with your assessment. the thing that both romney and joe biden did was that they controlled the tone and tenor of the conversation. >> right. >> that both were able to decide what the conversation would be about and when they would assert it. >> as a director of debate isn't that what you teach your students to do. absolutely. that's what i am interested in. i am interested in my students understanding that you have to connect with the audience and a major component of connecting with the audience is figuring out what they want and telling them here's what i have to offer. >> so the interruption part that everyone is talking about, isn't it part of it, too, if the moderator is not stopping, it's up to the moderator to facilitate it, right? not to sort of facilitate it, but isn't part of it throwing your opponent off? >> i think it is part of throwing your opponent off and it is a tactic that joe biden can use and it may not have been one afforded to paul ryan in this instance. that if paul ryan interrupted 80 times he would h
, romney, 50%. obama, 46%. again, among likely voters. both of those polls obviously well within the sampling error. a statistical dead heat, but both of the polls showing romney having momentum in the states after the first debate. we have seen that across a few polls, so the arizona poll, interesting and definitely defies the trend we have seen in other polls in other states. >> florida, remarkable numbers there. arizona, what about the rest of the country? >> the rest of the country, i mean, again, we have seen some tightening, some movement towards romney. you know, this poll position can be a little trucky. some polls show wider margins, different spreads than others, but we have definitely seen overall, predominantly, a momentum toward mitt romney after the first debate performance which underscores president obama going into the second debate, he has to do a lot better. he admitted he didn't do as well as he hoped to do. >> we'll see what happens on tuesday. the pressure is on. shannon travis, appreciate that. >>> lots of interesting things going on surrounding this race t
liberal both the way he governed since the 2010 midterms and in his campaigning. and i think the romney campaign and rnc have an ad out right now calling president obama a liberal. identifying him as such for voters which makes voters jobs a little bit easier. this is opening for romney campaign to continue to make that point and tie his policies with that idealogical label. martha: steve, they will be both out in force in ohio over the course of this week. rob portman will be campaigning with mitt romney as will chris christie. talk to me about the tightening in ohio. >> ohio, it is, isn't too much to say ohio is crucial obviously. if you look at the polls i think there was a sense both in public polling and internal polling for the campaigns that ohio was slipping away from republicans in a state that they need to win. now seems there is some tightening. there was a poll out in michigan last night shows president obama only up three points there. if president obama is only up three points in michigan and that's a good poll, it's likely that ohio is back to a dead-heat which insures th
half of those likely voters surveyed think president obama is more moderate th mitt romney. i think by any objective measure that is simply not true. if you look the way president obama has governed both before the 2010 midterms and particularly after the 2010 midterms when he did nothing to moderate his positions. he did not do a bill clinton style shift toe the center where he tried to triangulate. he has been proud, rather aggressive liberal both the way he governed since the 2010 midterms and in his campaigning. and i think the romney campaign and rnc have an ad out right now calling president obama a liberal. identifying him as such for voters which makes voters jobs a little bit easier. this is opening for romney campaign to continue to make that point and tie his policies with that idealogical label. martha: steve, they will be both out in force in ohio over the course of this week. rob portman will be campaigning with mitt romney as will chris christie. talk to me about the tightening in ohio. >> ohio, it is, isn't too much to say ohio is crucial obviously. if you look at th
for the championship series. >>> the race for t white house, the day after the vice presidential debate. both sides are claiming victory. but mitt romney is raising questions today about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. and what the vice president and others know about it. steve handelsman joins us live from cincinnati with the story. steve? >> reporter: jim, thank you. good evening from cincinnati, ohio. two hours after the debate site. this is a great place to eat. in a key county and maybe the key battleground state. so we hope a good place to gauge the effect of last night's debate. the election could hinge on hamilton county, ohio. cincinnati chili has the lunch favorite. but cincinnati voters swing between parties. barack obama won here in '08 but republicans are relieved today. >> last night's debate is not going to hurt us in the county. >> congressman ryan held his own. >> i will vote for obama, period. >> last night helped? >> just convinced it. >> reporter: paul ryan was upbeat this morning. >> i feel great. >> reporter: in danville last night, ryan drank a lot of water,
. the number of visits for the president and mr. romney equal there in wisconsin both have visited twice. statistics, teny electorial votes from the state of wisconsin. the the state governor scott walker you know that name well. we'll talk about that factor, the factor of a republican governor with our next guest in just a moment. also as far as polling, though, this is the latest "real clear politics" average, the president pulling away a little bit from mitt romney. not as much as before in the last couple of weeks but up by six points in the state of wisconsin. joining us now craig gilbert the washington bureau chief and national political reporter for the milwaukee "centennial." you've covered sixee legses. how does this compare to the past. >> everything is different the way the campaign works, the media works. as far as wisconsin we've had cycles where wisconsin was at ground zero especially in 2004. this year what jumps out about it in terms of wisconsin's role is paul ryan's appearance on the ticket. jenna: how will that help. >> he can't by himself close a 3 or 4 or 5-point gap
a vehicle. tontd, both sides are claiming victory in the viesz presidential debate. president obama watched from air force 1. mitt romney was in richmond today. but did the debate swing undecide ds voters? nbc news talked about who they saw as the winner. >> the vice president did? >> why? >> i think he came off as being very strong, emotional. >> vice president biden was being kind of immature with a lot of the skiend of snide sniers and everything. >> the next presidential debate, by the way, set for tuesday in hemstead, new york. right now, plans in the works for a million mup et march on the national mall, november 3rd. in that first presidential debate, romney vowed he will cut funding for public broadcasting: that sparked an online out cry and even a commercial from president obama comparing sesame street to wall street. two men came up with this idea for a rally supporting pbs. they hope to have skits and musical performances featuring the muppets. >> a legal fight brewing over new york city's ban on those super-sized drinks. plus, a new punishment for a high school bully. and we've
to romney. >> ryan is going to be brilliant. >> bill: whatever they do, it's a matter of i think both candidates will be very, very cautious. the reason i say that ryan lost it today was because you have to assume if you're ryan or romney that the press wants to hurt you, no matter who it is. when they do something as this reporter did, that was pretty stupid, you just laugh about it. come on. you roll your eyes. you don't react in a serious way because then that will be used against you. all right. >> remember, beating up on the left wing press works to the republican candidate's advantage every time. >> bill: if i had done that, if he said listen, you pinhead, that was an unfair question. but it looked like he wanted to get away from him so it didn't look good. later, john stossel on why some companies are hurting their workers over obamacare. interesting report. plus, selling your stuff. very quietly the supreme court may stop us from that! is it legal? moments away >> bill: in the impact segment, there is no question the romney campaign now has momentum because of the first debate
are you finding out? >> both candidates like to say they will create jobs. mitt romney creating studies saying his tax plan will create millions of them. this is what he told wolf earlier this week. >> we're not going to see that growth unless we have a tax policy that encourages businesses small and large to make investments and to hire people. that's why i want to put in place the plan i've described. by the way, it's scored by people at rice university as creating 7 million new jobs. >> romney citing a study that says under certain circumstances the romney tax plan could add 6.8 million jobs. however, diamond says that since romney does not make clear how he would pay for his plan, diamond had to make certain assumptions and depending what loopholes he closes, that could change the results. our verdict here is true with important qualifications on the claim that there is a study that says it would add 7 million jobs. it only adds 7 million if you assume certain details that romney doesn't apply. diamond not a paid adviser has provided? ed a advice to the campaign. mitt romney told "d
in the first debate. the vice president was so aggressive and over the top in ways both pleasing and offensive to others. that is just not president obama's style, as a politics, as a person. so i think he will find his own way to be aggressive, challenge romney, disqualify romney. i think that's important. he will have to do it in his own style. within the bounds of this format where you have people in the audience who are asking questions that they will try to speak with. >> not only the people but the whole town hall format, does that lend to one strength over another in this case? >> it certainly is tough nor romney. but i think this is tough for the president as well. you have to mold a little bit. you have to connect. on the program this morning, we will go back to 1992 and the signature moments for president clinton when he was governor clinton yb in being able to feel your pain, as the expression goes. where he could identify with the people in the room. i think they both can do that as they talk policy, to also connect. we have seen in romney with an image issue, that is something --
in just 30 days. a total of 835 million breaking his own record of four years ago. mitt romney has raised at least $548 million, and here's what's remarkable, if both men had stayed in what's known as the public financing system in which they can't take huge donations but then get matching federal funds, they could have only each spent $135 million. that means the president has really raised six times what he would have been allowed if he had stayed in the public financing system. now, mitt romney is going to continue today to try and flip florida into his column. he has another appearance in port st. lucie a little bit later today. >> astonishing numbers, david, thank you. >>> we'll turn to the political showdown, not between presidential candidates, but rather cable tv heavyweights, and in one corner "the daily show's" jon stewart, in the other bill o'reilly of fox news. at times, as you can imagine, decorum went out the window, and so many people wanted to watch online last night that the server actually crashed. abc's reena ninan has the story from washington. good morning, reena. >>
quinnpiac university, cbs news and the new york times show a dead heat in colorado and mitt romney cutting the president's lead in wisconsin in half. fox's doug luzader looks ahead to tonight. >>reporter: both vice presidential candidates are heading into tonight's debate with some new poll numbers. this is our brand new fox news poll. it shows that joe biden and paul ryan are pretty evenly matched, within the margin of error as far as their favorability numbers are concerned. but look at the unfavorables. that's where joe biden tonight has some ground to make up. paul ryan arrives in kentucky for his big night, swarmed by supporters. vice president joe biden is scheduled to arrive later today. this one on one between them is getting a lot of build because the stakes are so high after last week's obama/romney debate that may have turned this race on its head. president obama still stinging after what was seen as a weak performance, told abc's "world news" last night that biden just needs to be himself. >> i think joe just needs to be joe. congressman ryan is a smart and effective speaker,
's easily the most for either candidate in any month in this election. they both raised around $115 million in august. here's the hall. the romney campaign hasn't released their september numbers just yet. the president ended the week with a romantic dinner with his wife. wednesday was their 20th anniversary, but, of course, he spent that night debating romney. they got away to the four seasons hotel to celebrate, the anniversary, not at the debate. romney has been reaching out to voters in the crucial swing state this weekend. a lot of the talk has been centered on taxes and health care but he's also taken time to talk about his sin expirations and the people he's met on the campaign trail. >> i met someone named jane horton. she also suffered tragedy in her life. her husband christopher was killed in afghanistan as she was packing up a care package when a knock came at the door that he was tragically killed there. what did she do? she didn't fall into sadness and despair, but instead went to work to help other families that had lost loved ones and served our nation. she went to the funera
